We thoroughly enjoyed our visit, despite 90+ degree heat! We arrived on the train, took the tram to the visitors center. Crowds were light, I suspect due to the heat. Bless the employees and volunteers who were there doing hot work and demonstrations in costume! We had a great time chatting with them and learning about the buildings and what they were doing. We had some lunch at the visitors center, which was reasonably priced and tasty, with fast service. One thing to note, which worked out okay for us, is that they are only running one tram back to the train station and it leaves Hale Farm at 1:30! Thankfully we came on the early train, were able to see almost everything because it wasn't crowded, ate lunch, and were ready to go by then. You can walk back, but it is 3/4 mile and it was really hot. Also, the train continues SOUTH from there to Akron, before heading back north. We road the train for over 2 hours on the return trip to Rockside. If we had known that, we would have gotten off at one of the stops and looked around or eaten at one of the restaurants and caught the train when it was going north. It was a fun day though!

This museum of early white settler life in Ohio is very enjoyable and educational. This year while we visited we interacted with a living display of oxen. What beautiful animals. Love this museum and will be back.

I love how much both adults and children can experience and learn at Hale Farm. The staff and volunteers are super. We could watch glass blowing for an hour; it is mesmerizing. The location is so peaceful. We also seem to discover something new with each visit. On special event days, it is even more exciting there, especially during the annual Civil War reenactment in August.

A nice afternoon spent in the past. Interesting walking tour with period-dressed volunteers to answer questions. A few hours here is time well-spent!

Went for the maple sugar pancake breakfast with 6 adults and 4 kids. The bus from the train to the farm was nowhere near large enough for the number of people attending, and 2 of the kids fell while standing during the ride due to some questionable driving. The pancake breakfast was disappointing. You'd think that for an event glorifying maple syrup that they'd actually serve it for breakfast. Instead we were served some cheap corn syrup knockoff. The property "tour" was fine (self-guided) and probably best for older kids but still fun for the toddlers to run around. Overall, I don't think we'll be back. At least not for this festival.
